Bike wash any time soon???

Call me lazy... but is anyone having a bike wash soon? Noticed my bike was collecting dust... and although taking it through a car wash would be great on a hot Houston day... I'd rather not...

You need to convene the MotoHouston Congress to pass a non-binding resolution before washing your bike?

I usually just flip my tires. Much cheaper and faster.

You must have misunderstood... no need for any motions for non-binding resolutions and what not with regards to the MotoHouston Congress... just seeing if there were any bike wash events coming up

I'll make a deal.

Come over to my house and if you can rotate all four of my tires with a regular hydraulic jack, ratchet and four jack stands, from start to being completely finished/all tools put away in fifteen minutes... I will literally suck your .

If you lose you have to rotate my tires for life, free of charge.

That IS an attractive offer, but I'm not sure it would be worth the toll charges I would incur to get there.

Misunderstood I did. Never thought about any other way... always garden hose and a bucket on my own driveway.

Don't much trust anybody else getting my bikes wet... okay, mother nature, but she always makes a mess and is the reason I need to wash the bike in the first place.

You still haven't got your tires rotated? Don't you know that's a scam?

Oh please don't act like you don't pull to the side of the road and go by the sensors on 99

Oh wait, that's right...your bike has been sitting there for months because it has a bad battery that you don't feel like changing

I'll tell you what, new deal. I'll come change your battery, then you ride the bike over and rotate my tires. Free tolls, free tire rotations, plus no male on male sucking involved. It's a win-win

Yep just like changing your oil every 3k was the gold standard for years, and now manufacturers are starting to say it's excessive.

It's a bunch of bull generated by the automotive industry to increase revenue. Don't hate just because you work in the industry.

Jae hit the nail on the head. Run the out of the front tires and replace just those two.

rotating tires that cost 40 bucks a piece.

I do need to get off my and pick up another battery. , maybe even see if this one will hold a charge, I probably could've taken it to autozone to have it checked/charged for free a long time ago.
